M/T Enrico Ievoli - security guards

do you know whether there were security guards or any security measures in the hijacked Enrico levoli?

Hi CaptainN,
I work in the piracy protection sphere and we have made enquiries into what protection measures were in place aboard Enrico Levoli at the time of the hijack attack. Of the 18 POB we have established that none were security guards - indeed it seems the vessel had very limited security and that there was no citadel or anti-boarding devices.

The Enrico Ievoli vessel was apparently on its way to a rendezvous point for a Chinese armed convoy. From gCaptain weekly piracy update.
